All the birds tease old Crow for his scraggly feathers and harsh call, especially proud Cardinal. But when Cardinal gets into trouble, there is only one creature smart enough to get him out.

Read from the Book

Once upon a time, in a very charming little wood.A crow perched on the limb of a large and twisted old tree from dawn to dusk.This crow was very old, older than any of the other birds or animals for many miles around.His call was harsh and course; his feathers long and straggly. But this didn't bother him.He would have been happy, if the other birds left him alone.But they didn't. They mocked and teased him endlessly, flying around him and calling him names all day long. They always pestered him, singing, "Ugly old crow; ugly old crow."One bird, a proud, young cardinal, especially delighted in abusing him. Crow felt especially hurt by cardinal, who seemed to puff up proudly every time he pestered him.
